FROM BLISS OF BEING LONELY TO JOY OF BEING ALONE

“If you have been in a relation
and have travelled the journey,
from feeling the bliss of being lonely,
to enjoy being alone,
you have been able to remain honest to your ‘Self’;
you have claimed your renaissance;
you have achieved your renascence.”

If You Have Been In A Relation..

FROM THE BLISS OF BEING LONELY
TO THE JOY OF BEING ALONE

WHEN LIFE TAKES A TURN..

When life takes a turn, you can take the leap of your life.

And life does take turns regularly.

Like the moves of a cheating partner, commitment phobic and misleading, exploiting and excruciating.

Like the moods of a caring family member, always by your side, come what may, healing and reviving.

And you do have opportunities to leap ahead, in gloom, or when you bloom.

Positives add but don’t let the negatives drag you down.

Life can betray you, by subjecting you to its excesses.

But you need to remain honest to YOU.

Life is a long term game. Its turns are points of introspection to retrospect.

Make life’s betrayals your motivation and play it cool, with the detached objectivity of an insider.

Don’t be judgemental and revengeful but don’t forget it either.

Don’t fall to the trap of the induced hatred that these turns may throw but don’t miss the motivation it can induce either.

Walk with your thoughts, be in discourse with your soul, let it brew with time, and take a decision to hit back, to slam it hard.

YOU ARE LIFE’S CELEBRATION

The darkness,
Had a view
Strapped, unseen, ignored
Pushed,
Forbidden of its value
I had to see it,
I had to hold it
Before,
It could get too frenetic

You need to find you,
To meet you,
Yes,
There would be
Reasons to rue
But,
Think of,
What has been,
Your virtue
Believing again,
Life,
Has to be about you
Rewriting again,
What was always true

Yes, the darkness,
Had this message too
Hidden by the shadow,
That was untrue

I had to read it,
Again I had to foresee
Lest it was too late,
To hold it within me

Yes,
I needed to reclaim me,
From,
The clutches of the dark
Yes,
I needed,
To read life again
To deliver,
It on my benchmark
And,
The measure,
Had to be just me

The darkness,
Has its honest alter-ego
When,
The reclaimed ‘self’,
Sees the light grow

Think negative,
Only to think positive
Be practical,
But live your ideals
Love your ‘self’,
To love others

Life is because you are
Living has the elation
Only if,
You are its expression
Born on a day,
You are life’s celebration

Yes,
I read the darkness again,
To rewrite it,
To go,
Beyond the forbidden
Yes,
Life is about me,
Once again,
Remains unshaken

CLOUDS..I WANT TO HOLD ONTO THEM..

Clouds, I want to hold onto them this time

Initiating the conversation of a lost thread

I take a leap forward, to bridge the gap

To fill the void, created by their flirtations

And to address my detachment of ages

 

They are flying, but they look scattered

They are floating, and they look in a misleading league

 

Though I am prepared, the unease finds its way

I think I should convey it but I don’t

Their flirtations like always, deter me still

Pushing my thoughts on what if they won’t

But my gaze remains intent, holding them in view

 

They look alert, if they look indifferent too, unlike it was

There is something, their agility tells it’s different this time

 

Clouds, for a change, I want to hold onto them

And they look positive to join the communion

The Black, the Shiny, the White, the Gray

They look inclined to begin the conversation

As if they realize what they did to me then

 

They look scattered, but they convey their willingness

As if their misleading league was to tease me one last time

COURAGE HAS BEEN MORE THAN A WORD

Courage has been more than a word

It was the only help personified

When the darkness started taking over

It stayed as the only constant

When my Soul looked increasing distant

It has been there in moments of pain

When the spirit of living was the wane

It has been there in the moments of distress

When there were no more words to express

Courage has been more than a word

It has been the only call identified..
